Managing Ecommerce in Munich

Managing Ecommerce in Munich


If you are young and want to grow professionally, Germany could be the right country for you. Stylight, one of the world’s most important search engines for fashion and design, is the right kind of company. Alessandro Atti, a 27-year-old from Bologna who graduated from the MSc in Marketing Management, has been the business development manager of the German e-commerce portal since last April. The search engine automatically compares the prices and offers of about 1,000 shops in 17 countries around the world. «In Germany, if you prove you have good ideas, you are immediately given important responsibilities without looking at your passport», explains Alessandro, who manages Stylight’s UK and Italian markets. «Italy is an important part of our offer, since we sell goods from Italian shops in all the markets where we operate».
Furthermore, the work-life balance is also excellent, with extensive use of flexible work schedule. "Here there is no set time for coming to the office or leaving it; it is very results-oriented while giving considerable room for private life. In general, you work shorter hours and salaries are significantly higher than in Italy". Approximately 110 employees from all over the world work at Stylight’s headquarters in Munich. The average age is about 30 years old. «And everyone identifies with the company brand in some way, they are very involved», Alessandro continues, «thanks also to the wide use of corporate events, which can also have a playful and sporting nature». Before arriving in Germany, Alessandro Atti worked in Malaysia, for Rocket Internet, and then in Italy, for the giant of discount coupons Groupon, "There, I managed relations with big corporations and major brands. It was a positive experience that has also served me well for my current job assignment". Alessandro has fond memories of his alma mater, where he laid the foundations for his career: "Bocconi is a very stimulating environment that provides you with basic skills to get out of your comfort zone, and provides you with the kind of high-level economic and business theory you can really do all you want with».
